They already have some flooding in New Orleans.

My son used to work in New Orleans but just this week changed jobs to stay north of the Lake. Great timing!

The Misssissippi River is high, but it usually goes down when we get hurricanes, which usually around Sept. 1. The river has been unusually high this year. The "average" prediction is that it will briefly hit flood stage on Saturday. If it is above average, there will be some bad flooding.

After the Cat 5 that we went through last October I wouldn't wish one of these storms on my worst enemy. Hurricane Michael hit 9 months ago to the day and I'm still not back into my house, waiting on repairs to be completed.

Leftee, the map shows the storm reaching Shreveport on Monday. Don't know how big it will be or if the outer bands will reach Shreveport on Sunday or not. But most hurricanes are running out of steam by the time they reach north Louisiana.

GF, The house is ok structurally. It's currently gutted down to the studs on the inside waiting for contractors to put it all back together again. The problem seems to be that there's way more work to do than contractors to do it all. Just about every structure in the city took damage of some sort. The bright side is, I will basically have a brand new house when it's all said and done.

I lost about $35K worth of gear. Fortunately, I have good insurance and was paid out on all the music equipment and other personal property lost. Some of the equipment is stuff that I have no intention of replacing because I hadn't used it in years anyway. All of my good guitars survived. I moved them into a safe area prior to the storm.

I hope everything works out okay for you, Juice.

We just lost the contents of our refrigerator after Katrina hit. Power was off for two weeks. We were out of town for most of that time. We had to throw away all the food and get rid of the toxic refrigerator. We also lost a basketball goal when the top 60 feet of a nearby sweetgum tree broke off and fell on it.

But that was about all we lost.

I would not wish Katrina on anyone.

It never rains here in Shreveport! I wish. Things move west to east here so depending on landfall Shreveport may be OK. Fingers crossed.

the latest Spaghetti Plot the weatherman just displayed, shows the storm making landfall Saturday morning on the Western coastal shore of Louisiana, which puts the Southeast coastline of Texas on the 'dirty' side if the cone (9 o'clock position).


Yikes.

Which is where we are. Fortunately we live across the Mississippi from New Orleans proper, which is in the -6’ below sea level bowl that has to be pumped out. Pumps can handle 1” of rain in the first hour, and then 1/2” per hour after that, meaning that rainfall greater than that causes water to accumulate in the streets and then into homes and buildings.

It’s gonna be a beyotch

Best wishes for you, ND. So far, we have just had a few sprinkles. And the predictions for river levels are now lower than they were yesterday.

Thank you, Henry. We should be okay here in Gretna, but I feel bad for all the folks on the east bank, as it sounds like the rain will be coming down like it’s being poured out of a bucket for many hours. I hope you’re not too close the Bogue Falaya, ‘cause it will be swelling, too

ND, there's a small creek that runs into the Tchefuncte, which is what the Bogue Falaya flows into. It swelled up in the 2016 hundred-year-rain/flood and the 2017 hundred-year-rain/flood. As well as the 1995 hundred-year-raind/flood. The waters have not gotten into the yard this century, though the '95 floodwaters got into the front yard, about halfway to the house.
